Mr. Whiting - Senior 
Class Advisor 



Mr. Whiting has not only been an advisor to the senior class 
of 1998, he's been a leader and counselor to our class. He has 
guided us throughout the year helping us put together the senior 
year that we have dreamt of. Without your help Mr. Whiting, our 
senior activities would not have been. Thanks for the great year! 





Mr. Angelari -

Mr. Angelari has helped the senior class put together ou 
book of memories. He has been the one behind us, supportinj 
the people working on the yearbook. We, the class of 199J* 
would like to thank Mr. Angelari for once again, producing 
great yearbook for us to cherish the memories of our seni* 
year. If not for Mr. Angelari and a few select people, this yea 
book would not have been produced. 



Dedication to Mr. Winegar 



)r 



Methuen High School is known 

many great things, such as 

ports, academics, and our unique 

pcial environment. Yet all great 

pings must come to an end. And yet 

[gain, we must lose a great principal. 

l/ithin the few years Mr. Winegar was 

It MHS he has made an great impact 

n the student body. If you ever 

eeded to talk to him he always had 

n open door. You could always 

atch him and his wife at many MHS 

(ports events, and even at Apple- 

- s. There are few principals as 

reat as Mr. Winegar and he will be 

reatly missed. Good Luck in 

pringfield and in all future endeav- 

s.

Principal Jerome C. Winegar 







Mr. A. Steven Francis, 
Assistant Principal 

Mr. Francis has been a great role model in the past four years here at Methuen 
High School. In being the most senior of all the administration in years spent at 
MHS, you have developed a true knowledge and honor of your profession. You are 
one of the most dedicated people for the students at Methuen High and you will be 
remembered for your involvement in each of our lives. The yearbook staff and sen- 
iors would all like to thank you sincerely for the involvement in our lives. We wish 
you the best. 



Jane Obshatkin, Vice 
Principal 

In only your second year with us, you have already made relationships and ties 
that will last forever. You have incorporated yourself into Methuen High School with 
the utmost professional qualities and established a personable friendship with the 
students and staff. We wish you further success at Methuen High School and we 
know you will be a lasting figure in the foundation of the school. We wish you luck 
in the many years you may have at MHS. 



Suzanne Kelly, Assistant 
Principal j 

In your first year as an administrator at Methuen High School, you have devel- 
oped a great relationship with many of us here. We are unfortunate to have only 
known you for a year, but I know we will see your smile in the hallway when we come 
back to visit. Along with the other administrators here at Methuen High School, you ! 
have developed a great professional and personable relationship with the students 
and staff. We wish you the best of luck at MHS.

FOOTBALL 



Up and Down Year For The Men in Blue... 

This year's football season went through 
many twists and turns this year as the team 
finished up at 4-4-2. The team started out 
strongly by mauling Danvers and overpower- 
ing Andover for a combined score of 54-12 
and a shutout of Andover. Central was next 
and the hype was at its highest going into that 
week. Methuen however didn't fit the bill as the 
Rangers went down to the eventual Super 
Bowl champs 29-0. This game proved to be a 
major turning point in the season as the team 
went on to lose two out of the next three losing 
to Billerica in a heartbreaker and to Haverhill 
which was a major disappointment to the 
team. However, the team overcame Adversity 

as Methuen hosted Tewksbury, the defending Super Bowl champs. The 
game started off with a bang with a perfectly executed special teams 
play when Kenny Howshan returned a punt 66 yards for a touchdown. 
Methuen pulled out a triumphant victory however with a comeback 
touchdown in the final moments on a touchdown pass from Fountain 
to LaTulippe. The victory was sealed with a Dave Beaudoin interception 
on Tewksbury's final chance. It was then time to host Lowell, another 
MVC powerhouse that was favored to beat the Big Blue. The game, 
through a cold snow shower, proved to be a dogfight and ended in a 
14-14 tie. With two games remaining, the Rangers next faced an up 
and down Chemlsford team on Chemlsford's "frozen tundra." This 
game turned into a shootout on the ice as it became more of a passing 
attack for the Rangers. Sonny Fountain had possibly his overall best 
performance of the season and so did his receivers. This game, 
however, ended in a 28-28 tie. 

The Rangers, now 4-3-2, faced their season finale traveling to 
Dracut for the Turkey Day Classic. Methuen however faced a tougher 
team that day and lost in a lopsided but disappointing game 27-0 to 
end a roller coaster season. The season however taught the team how 
to overcome adversity when at its weakest. The victories were special 
and the losses, like any loss, were frustrating and disappointing. The 97 
season for the rangers had its difficulties but those difficulties were 
overshadowed by the amazing victories that showed the rangers were a 
force to be reckoned with. 





Captains: John Rumore, David Beaudoin, David Sevigny, Kenny Howshan, David 
Kerrins. 



Unfortunately, the season did not go as planned, but the experience of hig 
school football was unforgettable. I wouldn't trade my teammates for the world.

The MHS Cheerleaders went through some 
changes this year. First they had to start off 
with a team made up of mostly all new girls. 
Not to mention there new coach Tracy 
Woronka. They also had their first male on 
the squad. Yet, all these obstacles made 
them a great team. Under the direction of 
the tri-captains they had all the spirit and 
school pride that makes our cheerleaders 
the best in the MVC. Good Luck!!!! 




Tri-Captains 
Kerri Markey, Christina Tridenti, Deidre Didio 




iptains: Kelly Miner, Alison Brucado, Jenna Barbagallo 




Girls' Field Hockey 



This Ranger Field Hockey team had 
a promising season led by captains 
Kelly Miner, Alison Brucato, and Jenna 
Barbagallo. Their team showed that 
teamwork and effort pays off. With 
many underclassmen including all- 
conference Jen Solomon supporting 
the team, they should be a contender 
for the conference title in 1998.

Boys' Spring 
Track 

The 1998 boys track team 
went 5-1 this season beating 
Tewksbury, Andover, Billerica, 
Lawrence, and Dracut. This sea- 
son however was highlighted by 
an impressive performance from 
the whole track team versus 
Haverhill. The Rangers went to 
Haverhill's track and nearly 
knocked off the all-state cham- 
pion Hillies. This meet had per- 
sonal and area bests being shat- 
tered constantly. This meet signi- 
fied the great season the Ranger 
Track team had.

Jenna - 

We're so proud of you and all you have 
achieved! For 17 years you've brought us joy - 
Time to share you with the rest of the world! 
And in the days ahead, "May you always have 
enough peace and love." 

Love You!! 
Mom and Dad 



Anthony, 

Congratulations on all of 
achievements. You have made 
family so very proud. 
Love, 
Mom and Dad 



your 
your 





These were my old wheels, you 
should see my new ones, there just a 
little better. 



Anthony 

With love and pride we look upon you. That in your 
studies, sports and friendships you've built you make our 
hearts swell with pride. Since you were young, we tried to 
help you realize - The world is your apple - Anything is 
possible - You can go for and achieve anything with a bit of 
work, study, and practice. Remember when you were 6 and 
you wanted to go away with us horseback riding at the 
dude ranch? But to gallop, you must first learn to ride. The 
following year, you rode up front with the outrider at a full 
gallop. Why - because just after 5 months of lessons you 
were ready - you were prepared. No one gets to just jump 
on the stallion and ride off into the sunset looking fine, 
looking proud, without first preparing for the ride. Best 
Wishes as you go off to college and build your future. Be- 
cause the world is your apple, prepare for the big bite. 
We Love You - 
Mum and Artie xo 



Congratulations Ja- 
mie! You make us proud. 
Love, 
Mom, Dad, and Dustin 



Stacy, 

The years have flown by and now 
it's time for you to begin a whole new 
adventure. Try to keep a balance in life 
and remember - We Love You Always. 
Wishing you Peace - Love - and Hap- 
piness! 

Mom and Dad 




Stacie, 

As you oh, so successfully close this chapter of your 
life, we look forward to watching you write the next one 
as only you can do. We are so very proud of you and all 
of your achievements. We wish you a lifetime of bagels, 
daisies, laughter, love and success. Reach for the stars - 
there's one on top with your name on it! 
Love Always, 
Mom, Dad and Alison

Remember the Days 

Remember the days of the past, 
As we spend our last days as a class. 

Remember the day we arrived freshman year, 
It's come to an end as we shed our last tear. 

Remember the days spent avoiding the "advanced" security cop, 
As we departed for lunch when there was no turkey slop. 

Remember the day we all first met, 
As we say goodbye to the friends we will never forget. 

Remember our school as the one with the orange halls, 
You would've thought they'd at least build us walls! 

Remember going to Applebee's after Friday night games, 
Without our senior class "Apps" will never be the same. 

Remember Mr. Winegar and our two years together, 
The senior class thanks you and will miss you forever. 

Remember when the senior girls fell in love with Central guys, 
Those next three years only problems would arise. 

Remember the rivalry for it will never end, 
What a shame these two schools just couldn't be friends. 

Remember the fun times we've had in the past, 
It seems like these four years have gone by too fast. 

Remember the senior prom as we celebrate, 
Have the time of your life as it's getting late. 

For when midnight arrives we'll get that last chance 
To hear the last song and dance the last dance. 

By Stacie Forsythe & Jeff Osgood
